The old Mantzavelaki ice factory at the entrance of Chora has been restored and turned into a folklore and religious museum to show a typical urban Andros house with cellar, while also highlighting local products and professions. The upper area of the building that served as a mill is dedicated to Christian Art from the 18th to the early 19thcentury. During that period, great Andriot painters, whose works are still preserved in various churches of the island, excelled (Theodosios, Nicholaos Mintrinos, D. Bernardis and others) and a map of the island points these churches and monasteries to be visited. The first floor is divided into three sub-sections that exhibit local church hagiography, ecclesiastical goldsmith artifacts and wood carved iconostases from churches of Andros. Every August the museum organizes a special exhibition to showcase the history of Andros, while every year there are two festivals for the promotion of local gastronomy: one is the Feast of Lemons in Easter and the other is called ‘Wine, Cheese and Local Bread Roads’, held on the day of the celebration of the Holy Spirit.
